I have been using WPTouch Pro since June 2010 since I am a heavy user of my iPhone and it works great. It allows me to use threaded comments when I write comments on the iPhone and load the site without waiting it to load. Mobile Themes are becoming more important since AT&T and soon Verizon would be getting rid of Unlimited Data Plans. As a result, having an optimized site for mobile users will use the data plan more efficiently since its not loading all the bloat from the full theme.
Today, BraveNewCode has released a beta of WPTouch Pro 2.1 that adds iPad support along with other features. Overall, it captures the multitouch experience rather nicely even though it wasn’t necessary since the desktop theme loaded fine. Even so, I wanted to provide users options.
Its worth nothing that this theme isn’t limited to iPad, but it works on the Amazon Kindle too. In the future, they will probably add support for the Samsung Galaxy Tab and RIM’s BlackBerry Playbook. I’m quite interested on how WPTouch iPad theme would operate on these devices.
Even though there is an iPad theme called Padpress, I decided against that since it costs too much money and I knew that the guys at BraveNewCode would make the iPad browsing experience better for a lot less ($29 opposed to $49).
Chikorita157’s Anime Blog and Shiori’s Diary has the iPad theme enabled, so go ahead and try it out for yourself if you own a iPad or a Kindle.
